Question about Breadman TR2200C Ultimate Bread Maker
My breadman didn't work for awhile. I unplugged it for a couple weeks and it started to work. The only problem is that now I can only use the basic white cycle. The select button doesn't work. Any idea's?
The microprocessor in the keypad probably needs to be reset. With the unit unplugged, remove the keypad housing (one screw in back, one on the left side, rock it up enough to get a small screwdriver inside, then push back the soft plastic fingers to release the housing -- force it a bit, you won't break it). You do not need to remove the bottom cover.
Remove the keypad cover (4 screws) and the PC board (one screw). You'll see a factory reset button near the middle of the left side. Press and hold that for a couple of seconds.
If you want to test the unit before re-assembly, hold the PC board so it doesn't short against anything (there's nothing more than 5v on the board, so you won't get shocked), and plug the unit in. The display should appear. Unplug the unit, re-assemble, and then bake some bread!
There is also the possibility that the backup battery on this PC board is bad. Check it with a voltmeter -- it should be about 5v.

Tips for a great answer:
Addressing Power-up/Start-up Issues:
1. Unplug the breadmaker.
2. Confirm the power source your accessing is live using a blender, toaster, etc.
3. Plug the breadmaker in.
4. Confirm the breadmaker is receiving power:
3. No, you were not able to confirm that your breadmaker is receiving power? Sorry to hear that. Attempt to have the breadmaker serviced by a small appliance repair facility or discard it.
4. Yes, you have confirmed that your breadmaker is receiving power? Fantastic! Now reset the breadmaker by pressing down on the Start button until you notice a visible and/or audible confirmation, usually within 5 to 10 seconds. Note: It bears mentioning again at this point that some models require you press the Select button first to select a mode, then press the Start button.

Reboot the breadmaker's electronics by pressing and holding down the Stop button down until you receive a visible and/or audible confirmation, usually within 1 to 5 seconds. Note: Some models require you press and hold the Start button instead. Others require you press and hold the Select button instead.
Hope This Helps!

Addressing Power-up/Start-up Issues:
E. Some models require you press down on the Start button until the unit powers up.
F. Some models require you press down on the Select button until the unit powers up.
G. Some models require you press the Select button first before pressing the Start button.
In the end, were you able to confirm that your breadmaker is receiving power?
No. Sorry to hear that. Have the breadmaker serviced by a small appliance repair shop or simply discard it.
Yes. Fantastic! Now reboot the breadmaker's electronics by pressing down on the Stop button until you receive a visible and/or audible confirmation, usually within 1 to 5 seconds. Note: Some models require you press down on the Start button instead. And yet a few others require you press down on the Select button instead.
Often the + and - Delay Timer buttons are pressed by mistake, delaying Start by up to 12 hours. If you suspect this handy feature has been engaged accidentally, you'll need to reboot the breadmaker's electronics.
Note: All breadmakers use a belt and pulley system. If your breadmaker powers-up but the mixer won't turn during the kneading cycles, your timing belt is probably broken. You'll need to disassemble the breadmaker to visually confirm. The belt and pulley assemblies are located at the bottom of your breadmaker.
